To my surprise, men leggings have been a slow-burning trend. "Meggings" first turned up on overseas catwalks in 2007 - a lifetime ago in fashion years. Even before then, some of Hedi Slimane's leather pants for Dior looked more like leggings than pants. It was actually Slimane's obsession with men who looked like emaciated stick insects that spawned fashion's penchant for skinny-leg jeans and now leggings.
Among the fashion designers in 2009 Fashion collection, Givenchy and John Galliano were both designers who had designed their designs around with leggings.
So for those brave enough, you may want to embrace the latest fashion's craze this summer.
